	(Sans Slow Movement)

	by Dr. Bedros Afeyan

	  Gliding in a desert of sound
	Cello here, piano there,
	A caravan under the sun
	Limited water supply
	Unkind draining ditches
	Parapets, parasols, vestibules
	  Yet bars close and bars follow
	Repeats, shifts, gloom, ecstasy
	  Brahms at the keyboard
	Marching through the cello
	Slicing infants, newborns
	In thirds, fifths and glissandi
	  Yet bars close and bars follow
	Repeats, shifts, gloom, ecstasy
	  Movement after movement,
	Emblazoned with emotion
	Breathing fire, yet recurrent
	Recycled, repeating past
	Its own beauty,
	A sonata for a repentant
	You and me.

	Saint Timothy's, Danville, CA
